Saturday Rounds at Poker Flat
Three teachers from Martin's snow and ice course joined us for our usual Saturday trip to Poker Flat. In addition to measurements from four ponds, we do two transects (land and woods) and ice thickness. Research assistant, Craig is comparing heat flow results from these two additional transects for his senior thesis.
The Science Behind Temperature Gradient, continued
Are you ready for the next step? Remember, all we need are three things: snow depth (Zs), surface temperature (Ts) and base
temperature (Tb). The formula is Ts-Tb/Zs. What are the temperature gradient results for March 27th, 29th, and 30th? See tomorrow for answers.
